Every year we make these Christmas tree bark candies for ourselves and as gifts for teachers and neighbors.

They take practically no time at all, and are impossible to mess up, plus…EVERYONE loves them.

My kids always enjoy making them together, especially the part where they get to use my mallet to crush the peppermint sticks into tiny pieces, lol.

We make this easy Christmas bark recipe every year for teacher gifts and parties. The pepermint Christmas tree bark is as delicious as it is festive. #ChristmasBark #PeppermintBark #EasyDIYChristmas

In fact, we recently saw some Christmas shaped peppermint bark at a coffee shop and when I picked them up to take a look, my oldest daughter basically turned her nose up at the idea of buying it and said, “We can make that ourselves.”

Now, I know that some of you will want to make this easy DIY Christmas bark recipe for homemade Christmas gifts for family, friends, teachers, neighbors, etc.

Easy Christmas Bark Recipe

Make these easy peppermint Christmas bark candies for simple DIY Christmas Gifts. We use them for our DIY holiday teacher gifts every year and everyone loves them. #DIYChristmas #HolidayTeacherGifts #ChristmasCandy #ChristmasBarkRecipe

To make this Christmas bark, you’ll need a silicone mold. The one we use every year came from the Dollar Tree several years ago, but it works wonderfully and is still in perfect shape.

If you don’t have one of these trays and can’t find them at a discount store (I haven’t seem them at Dollar Tree this year), you can find something very similar on Amazon.

Sunday 2nd of December 2018

Hello Anthea! Thank you for taking the time to comment, as I didn't realize that the recipe card for this post was accidentally deleted. I will add a new recipe card to the post as soon as I can. In the meantime, you can easily make the peppermint bark without a recipe: - Put a few candy canes in a plastic ziplock back and crush them up (start with 3-4 candy canes) - Melt dark chocolate and white chocolate chips in separate bowls (you can do this in the microwave - just check on the chocolate and stir often until melted) - Layer crushed candy on the bottom, then thin layer of white chocolate, then the dark chocolate - Put in the freezer so that the chocolate hardens That's it! Enjoy, and thanks so much for leaving your comment!
